Birthday Ear

Apparently, there's a "celebrate your birthday with Swimmer's Ear" epidemic going around! Grace will be copying Addy by having her 9th birthday party at the pool one day after being diagnosed with swimmer's ear. It's the gift that keeps on giving!

The poor girl is in so much pain, but thankfully Tylenol is working well and not spiking her blood sugar.

She is running a tad high today, but diabetes being diabetes, I don't know if that's due to her usual (of late) erratic numbers, or the infection. Which is actually more of an irritation not an infection since she's not being treated with antibiotics. I do know that her numbers have been crazy long enough that it's not all the fault of her ear.

But it's making it harder to zero in on what her pump settings should be. I'm hesitant to make too many more changes until this clears up. I guess I'll wait another day or two before deciding if more changes are needed.


  1. I hope Grace has a GREAT birthday, despite the Swimmers Ear. : )
